Spring harvest! We planted a salad bowl a couple weeks ago and I picked some for salad the other night. Yummy I also made a spinach salad for DH (I'm not fond of spinach). It survived the winter, along with a couple of Swiss chard plants that are coming back.

Those other tall stems are garlic! I think I'll harvest them today so they can cure in the sunroom for a few days.

I picked these a couple days ago. Light green and gold zucchini, a tomato, a few beans, and Anaheim and jalapeņo peppers.

Today's harvest

Nice, GG. You're well ahead of us.

I picked my first ripe blueberry today, forgot to take a pic as I already ate it...

Thank you! The temporary greenhouse DH built helped a lot. We started seeds in there in February.

Here in New York, Ive been snacking on peas the past week or two, picked my first string bean yesterday, arugula and romaine ready for picking. Everything else still a few weeks away.

When compared to last year, I'm about 2 weeks behind.

Looks great, GG!

My jalapenos aren't doing all that well - I should have had some harvest by now. They're kind of leggy - I think I'll chop them down and see if they'll re-grow, since we have a long growing season.

Sounds good, Larry! Yummm....fresh peas.

I ate my first 5 strawberries yesterday, they were too sweet and tasty to wait for a camera to take their picture.

We couldn't contain our curiosity, so yesterday we opened the potato box a little, to see how they're coming along. We dug out six and put the panels back on because they're still a little small.
